[Haskell-cafe] Building SDL-image package on Windows

Wed Aug 27 18:05:57 EDT 2008
Adding the main macro undef has solved the linker errors and both SDL_image
and SDL_ttf build and install correctly now. For both SDL_image and SDL_ttf
only the ./Graphics/UI/SDL/Image/Version.hsc file needed to be changed,
pasting in the undef macro under "#include SDL_image.h" and "#include
SDL_ttf.h" respectively. Thanks for your help!
It would probably be a good idea to include these notes in a WIN32 file like
for the SDL package for other users. I sent an e-mail to the listed
maintainer on Hackage yesterday, is that the best way to about doing this?
